Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.
Applications to attend the Platinum Party at the Palace, to be held at Buckingham Palace on 4 June, close on 23 March and can be submitted online.
The organisers of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, taking place on the streets of London on 5 June, have also announced a public competition for tickets. They have produced celebration pack of ideas to inspire communities across the UK to organise their own events that connect to the main Pageant.
The government’s Platinum Jubilee website now has over 650 events listed which includes private street parties as well as larger-scale public events. The Council is encouraging communities to hold local celebrations and street parties and add them to the online events map.
